September Faculty Colloquium

Faculty are invited to the first Faculty Colloquium of the academic year.  The faculty colloquia are informal presentations and vibrant interchanges showcasing topics relevant to the enrichment of the university’s community of scholars and teachers.   The first colloquium, titled “Gen Y at DeSales,” is scheduled for Wednesday, September 9 at 3:00 PM in Dooling Hall, room 128.   The presenter will be Dr. Scott Mattingly, Assistant Dean of Academic Life.

In this colloquium, we will discuss common characteristics of Gen Y (a.k.a. Millennials) students as well as the disconnect between Gen Y expectations and reality with regard to higher education. We will also consider how larger historical, economic, and generational trends have contributed to the emergence of these characteristics. Finally, we will explore manifestations of these characteristics in your courses, including challenges and opportunities. This presentation may serve as a precursor to future events at which concrete strategies for enhancing Gen Y student learning would be shared.

Refreshments will be served.  For additional information contact: John Bell, chair of the Academic Oversight Committee at: john.bell@desales.edu.
